Product Information

"The duo behind Julia Child offers a bold first-person biography of designer Elsa Schiaparelli." - Publishers Weekly

'Morstad's vivid mixed-media have an imaginativeness to match Schiaparelli's surrealistic designs (playing with a beloved uncle as a child, she soars amid the stars and planets of the cosmos) and feature splashes of Schiaparelli's trademark shade of pink...[It's] a dramatic tribute worthy of its audacious subject.' - Publishers Weekly

"With beautiful, richly colorful, and playful artwork nicely evoking the character of its subject, this lyrical biography of Elsa Schiaparelli offers picture-book readers an enlightening introduction to the wildly inventive and influential fashion designer." - Booklist
